Forum rules
Forum rules
Not 'Rules', necessarily, but here's how BerserkerDay goes:

I'll be launching offers in groups of 8-10, in increments of 30 minutes. Sponsors will stay pegged at the top of the forum all day, each new group of offers will come in at the top with them for their launch grouping, cycling into the 'normal' thread after their launch time has passed, with a new launch group posted atop the thread thereafter. Discussion is encouraged, as posting replies moves the thread up to the top of the grouping, whether that is during launch time group or the 'regular' forum.

Keep checking in every 30 minutes for new offers being posted, and keep scrolling down to see everything that has been launched throughout the timeframe in which you've been on the forum, which hopefully is ALL DAY

I had issues ordering wine last week. As I suggested a few posts up, it's time for these people to get a new webmaster. I say this as a constructive criticism.

Dan
I'd recommend giving Chris a ring (phone number on ProofLoyalty site). I just spoke to him and got my order placed over the phone. Sounds like they are heeding your advice on the new webmaster, so hopefully the integration is fixed in the relatively near future.

It's coming up on the one year anniversary of everyone getting the Grand Reserve World Mastercard. This means that the annual fee is due shortly. I'm curious if this product will continue to be around in the future. What's up guys? There's lots of buzz, and it's not good.

Dan...I have been frustrated with redemption and with plenty of other cards figured I would cancel, particularly with annual fee coming up. Upon calling, the rep said I had no annual fee for life...surprised. Still moved forward with canceling.

Interesting, just called to cancel and they said you did it just in time to not get the annual fee charged. It was a good deal, getting close to 1000 of value back even when they missed delivery for BD12 last year.

You can cancel for free within 30 days of being charged.

I'm still waiting for a response to an order that I e mailed a few days ago. .

Sad there's no response.

Todd French, do you have any influence with matthewgoldman ?

I e-mailed them to discuss my displeasure with not being able to order wines through the online portal, and to cancel if I'd be charged a fee for the next year. They said they'd waive the annual fee. Nothing about "no fee for life", maybe that was a perk for Monopole Members. Matthew Goldman, can you confirm/discuss the no fee for life terms please?

John Vizuete, the annual fee is $149, waived for at least the first year

It appears the Grand Reserve Card/program is closing, based on an email I just received. Will close on March 9th, 2022.

Yep. Just got the email. Closing down for good.

Maybe too much of a niche for a credit card?

Seems like it. I'd imagine there could be a higher ratio of affluence for people interested in a wine awards credit card versus your traditional awards card from say, Bank of America or Chase. Grand Reserve might not have been generating lot of revenue via interest/late fees and were relying more on transaction fees. Not sure how sustainable of a business model that is, especially if the population of card holders is on the lower end given how niche the market is.

It was great when the Vault had outsized redemption value, but once that went away all redemptions were 0.6 cents per point.
That being the case I appreciate the easy 0.8 cent per point cashout they're offering for unredeemed points (via virtual debit card once they close all cards).

All things considered I'd say it was a good year with the card.

Just got my email from them and completed the process to have my cash wired to my bank. No complaints here. Sad they are gone.

So am I. It was nice having a rewards card dedicated to wine and prime beef. The rewards were nice too, I ended up with 50 new wine glasses. 24 Gabriel Glas, 20 Glas Vin and 6 Grassl.

Big groan. I think they're hoping to reduce breakage (their expenses) by some of us not using the full amount on the gift card.

I took my e-card, punched the number into my credit card software and pulled the cash from the till. Easy peasy!

I added it as a payment method on Amazon and then bought a gift card for the exact amount

I received a direct deposit into my checking account. It took 3 days. They used a third party called Vertical Finance.
